Collectibles-General (Antiques)/Wood wardrobe



Just purchased this wooden wardrobe.  I have no info on it. I paid $130 for it. The wood wheels were found inside the wardrobe.
Can you please give me an estimate of age and value?
Thank you.
I will email more pictures.

from the 1920s, probably european.  originally sat on a base rather than legs and had a crown that sat on the top.  no one would know that without seeing many of them before.

it looks good and you did well on the pricing.  a coat of wax would be good.  clear or brown briwax. after that and adding a base and crown it would sell at 450.

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.


I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
